Imran preparing to file PIL against drinking age rule

There was some uncertainty on his eligibility for taking up such proceedings as he is a US citizen but his lawyers seem to have found a way in his favour, according to the actor who was born in America.

"I am waiting to get the final paperwork from my lawyers. There was doubt that I, being a US citizen, won't be able to do it. Now I think I will be able to do it. I am waiting till I get an exact confirmation on that," Imran told IANS.

The 28-year-old actor is avoiding any talk on the matter during the promotion of "Mere Brother Ki Dulhan", lest the intensity of the issue gets diluted.

"I don't want to mix it with 'Mere Brother Ki Dulhan' because then it dilutes the thing. If I do so, the issue gets lost and becomes a gimmick," he said.

Releasing Sep 9, the directorial debut of Ali Abbas Zafar, "Mere Brother ki Dulhan" is a romantic comedy which also features actress Katrina Kaif and singer-turned-actor Ali Zafar in lead roles.

The Maharashtra government increased the legal age for alcohol consumption to 25 years from 21 in June.
